During the launch of the Laver Cup in Geneva on Friday, Roger Federer explained his priorities.
The Swiss Maestro confirmed that he is not concerned about his sinking rankings (he is now no. 6), but he is more concerned about winning titles and keep a high level of tennis.
“For me, the ranking, at 37 years old, is no longer really the priority.
But the idea for me is to be in good health, to know that I can win tournaments, to know that I can beat Djokovic and Nadal and after that, it is a pleasure.
Even if my ranking goes down further, it’s not a problem for me. As long as I say I can win a grand slam as I did two years ago with a world ranking of 17, everything is in place.”
About the tournaments that Federer is going to play
Roger confirmed that he is going to play the upcoming ATP500 in Dubai before heading to Indian Wells and Miami. The Swiss confirmed his participation at the Roland Garros and the fact that he will play some tournaments to prepare for the French Open (he didn’t specify which ones and how many).
